Hearthstone’s Whispers of the Old Gods means never having to say you’re ‘sorry’

    
45
Hearthstone’s Whispers of the Old Gods expansion launches today. First teased via Brooklyn mural last month, the update includes new game formats, friendly challenge meny tweaks, new card backs, deck recipe adjustments, and bug fixes. The weirdest patch note of all? Blizzard has apparently pulled the “sorry” emote out of the game:

The “Sorry” emote has been replaced with a new “Wow” emote. Wow!

Apparently, players were abusing the emote in the otherwise chat-free online game to spew sarcasm at opponents and bluff about their tactics. However, this is the internet, which means people are already discussing how “wow” will be abused — to say nothing of “thanks” and “oops.” Oops!

Honestly I don’t know why some people read these articles, when they could be getting better at the game. No wonder 90% of people stay at BOTTOM level while the big boys-including me, get better everyday to pwn more noobs.
It wasn’t hard once I started using this: http://gamesinfun.com/learn-hearthstone-mastery

Did we learn nothing from 1984? Take away the word “bad” and you just get “ungood”. Take away “terrible” and you get “double-plus ungood”.

Might as well replace it with “kek”.

This was easy to self-police. I’d just obviously burn the rope the first turn “sorry” was used. That usually sent the message immediately. If they were a bit obtuse, the second time I made a move in 5 seconds and then burnt the rope while silently rifling my cards always did. No more “sorry”.

Wow is even more passive-aggressive, especially for Jaina.

Estranged Given the guy used to do WoW machinima (notably https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeUhSjuhQYE ), it sure seems so.
